    I have the brodex trolley like the one pictured here:


    Now, I bought it last year, hardly been used, for £350.
    I used it twice and have had it standing in the garage for 18months or so.

    I came round to giving it a test to sell, so I charged the battery for a good few hours, and the charging light came on fine.
    Now, it won't work.
    I checked the hose for blockages and nothing, I checked the wiring as much as I could and seems fine.
    Unknown why it's stopped.
    I am debating about taking it to a shop nearby who sell and maintain cleaning systems (Ace Janitorial), can you think of anything else I can check before I get them to look at it, as it'll cost me money, also, it's up for sale after, so if anybody is interested let me know. hehe

    Hi Masons - pressure switch may have stuck in off position - try taking the 2 wires that connect with spade connectors to the bottom of the pump and joining them together.

    Also - when you checked to see if it would run, did you have pole connected as this can cause the same thing.

    With the speed control - try it in various positions just in case it is playing up - it may work on full power.

    And of course - fuse!

    Hope you get it sorted soon.
